About Us

The UK’s premier location for the preservation and operation of vintage Military Helicopters.

Historic Helicopters was established in 2013 with the aim to preserve, restore to airworthy status and operate a select fleet of vintage Military Helicopters. The brainchild of Mr. Andrew Whitehouse, this pioneering and unique collection has forged new ground in the world of historic aircraft preservation.

The fleet currently consists of the following:

Westland Whirlwind HAR10 XJ729

Westland LYNX AH7 XZ616

Westland Sea King HAR3 XZ588

Westland Sea King HAR3 XZ597

A small and dedicated team of Aircraft Engineers are employed to preserve and maintain the Historic Helicopters fleet. Most of these Engineers are former members of the Royal Navy and Royal Air Force. They bring with them a wealth of knowledge and experience and a few of them have previously worked on the very aircraft which now occupy our hangar.
